Journal Broadcast Group Community Partner Program

This Month We Spotlight our October Community Partner.

BAG IT is committed to providing information and education to newly diagnosed individuals with cancer and their families. This information is designed to help them cope with their diagnosis, and empower them to become an active member of the treatment team. The helplessness of being a "victim" begins to diminish with this type of support. Our slogan for BAG IT is "Fight the Fear".

Founder, Sherri Romanoski, was diagnosed with cancer in 2001 and like so many other patients, tried to find information to cope and to assist her in talking with her family about cancer. Her doctors gave her details about her cancer and treatment, but nothing about how to handle her diagnosis. She found little assistance to help her cope with feelings of devastation, lack of control, loneliness, and desperation. After completing a tough course of chemotherapy, she came to the realization that this coping problem existed not only for her, but other patients as well.
After almost two years of development, with the input from focus groups of cancer survivors, oncologists, and oncology nurses, BAG IT was made available to individuals with cancer and their families.

Journal Broadcast Group – Tucson Operations, which operates 4 Radio Stations and 2 local TV stations, has announced a community partnership project that will donate over $1.5 million annually in media value to local charitable organizations.

One organization will be selected each month as the Journal Community Partner. A comprehensive media campaign will be created utilizing all Journal Broadcast Group properties to bring needed awareness for those charitable organizations that provide services and resources to the Tucson community.

The Journal Community Partner program is over and above the numerous community service efforts that each station supports individually.

To be eligible for consideration applicants must be a 501C-3 non-profit organization, a collaboration of non-profit partners, or a community or corporate foundation. The partnership application form may be found on this page:
